The IQS School of Engineering, Ramon Llull University offer a PhD fellowship. The main purpose of the PhD proposal is to develop stimulus-sensitive ligands to target the nanocarrier systems and to cross the BBB. Antibody and/or peptide mimetics will be generated combining genetic and chemical approaches. The project may involve synthetic biology, protein engineering, directed evolution, peptide synthesis, and bioorthogonal click chemistry. Interest in the optimization of polymeric nanocarriers for gene delivery will also be valued. Furthermore, you will screen nano-bio-therapeutics in cellular assays and may contribute to their validation in vivo.
